Cory Henry is a multi-instrumentalist and producer with a catalogue worthy of a man twice his age. Using his primary instrument, the organ, he captures the breadth of the jazz and gospel idioms and produces something altogether new through his unique blending of the two genres.
You may know Henry as the man behind the funk in Grammy Award winning outfit Snarky Puppy, but he has worked with a host of stars, often at their request, including P. Diddy, Kirk Franklin, Lalah Hathaway, Joe, Boyz2Men, NAS, Bruce Springsteen, The Roots, Betty Wright, and many others. Henry’s awe inspiring live shows and YouTube performances have gained him a loyal and sizeable following.
His latest release, “First Steps” was released in 2014 and went to #1 on iTunes Jazz Chart. Earlier this year he will be released a special record called “The Revival” and his first album with The Funk Apostles is due in September.
“Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles took to the stage and brought with them an almost tangible vitality that washed over the venue.” - ChicagoMusic.com
